On October 21, 2016, at approximately 10:25 a.m., officers were dispatched to the 5900 block of Waterfront Place regarding a single vehicle accident involving a semi-truck.

Upon arrival an officer contacted the male adult driver of the semi-truck and based on his observations felt that the subject was possibly in medical duress. The officer immediately called for Long Beach Fire to respond. 

When fire personnel responded they started administering medical aid and subsequently transported the subject to a local hospital. While at the hospital the subject’s medical condition declined and he was later pronounced deceased.

The subject is only being identified at this time as a 33 year-old resident of Compton.

The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office will determine cause of death and make positive identification. 

Anyone who may have information regarding the accident is urged to contact the collision investigation detectives at (562)570-7355.
